Great for the COLD North
Reviewed By: Theresa (newberry, MI)
We had great success with this corn in 2012, it germinated great, even with the cool Michigan ground. And the flavor was nicely sweet. We were amazed at the size of the ears. So we ordered both the Northern Xtra-Sweet Yellow Sweet Corn and the Northern Xtra-Sweet Bicolor Sweet Corn for 2013. we moved (250 miles N.) to Newberry , MI got the garden in late, however we got corn just before frost and it was just as sweet. I shared with a neighbor so he could see how much more sweetness and flavor it has compared to what he'd planted. He'll be getting some seeds this year. We will order this every year. Thanks

The best for cooler ground
Reviewed By: Theresa (Newberry, MI)
We plan to plant this for the third year. Last summer we moved to the upper peninsula of Michigan didn't plant till end of June. the summer was short. we still got great tasting corn. We shared with a neighbor, his corn had little flavor. He will plant this too, I'm ordering his seeds.

Great early corn
Reviewed By: Bill (Falkville, Alabama)
Planted this corn early and harvested in mid June in north Alabama. Very good flavor and followed second planting with Got to have it. No problem with cool soil with this variety. Guests at Sunday dinner rave about our home grown corn.

Top choice for early
Reviewed By: Bryan (Greenville, SC)
This is the second year I have planted Northern Xtra Sweet, and I will continue planting it. The stalk's short 5-ft. height helps it withstand summer wind storms, but surprisingly every plant produces two beautiful golden ears so early; living in SC, I get my first harvest in mid-June! The taste is sweet and kernels crisp but has plenty of the traditional corny flavor; it is much better than Kandy Korn in my opinion. It froze well too off the cob, and I was sad to see our supply spent with the winter only half finished. It is worth planting for the first early taste of fresh corn weeks before other varieties mature. Try planting this with Gotta Have It hybrid--Gotta Have It is THE absolute best, but not as early as Northern Xtra Sweet.
